Have you seen the Bucks new alternate road digs?
Remember two seasons ago when I was obsessed with the Bucks uniform change and I speculated they might go with an all red look? It turned out I was not wrong... just premature. Two years on and the Bucks will indeed be sporting an all red uniform -- occasionally -- on enemy hardwoods across the Association this winter.
A few days ago the Milwaukee Bucks unveiled their new "designed-to-boost-replica-jersey-sales" all-red alternate road jerseys with "Milwaukee" on the front. The new jerseys are the first predominantly red uniforms in team history, and the first to feature the city in over 30 years.
I love the "Milwaukee" touch. City lettering like that hearkens back to the Green and Red glory years, including my favorite Bucks road jerseys -- the hunter green and red scripted "Milwaukee" traveling greens from the Bucks 1973-74 Western Conference Championship season -- and definitely hearkens back to my second favorite road jerseys, the ones from the Bucks only World Championship season in 1970-71.
But... to be brutally honest with you, Antlerheads... I'm not sure i like the red look. It just doesn't say "Bucks basketball" to me at all. In fact... and believe me I hate to say it... but it kinda says this to me. What do you guys think?
